Preparation of the sushi cake and it's decoration

  1. Cook the Calrose sushi rice according to the instructions on the packaging and flavor with Sushi rice vinegar. Leave to cool.
  2. With your fingers moistened, spread 1 cup of rice on one soya sheet or nori sheet.
  3. Flip the sheet over thanks to a plate so that the sushi rice stuck to the sheet is face down on the plate. Thinly cover the newly exposed sheet with roughly 1 cup of rice.
  4. Garnish with half the smoked salmon.
  5. On an available kitchen counter surface, place a 2nd sheet and cover with rice in the same fashion as above. Place this new rice covered sheet on the smoked salmon with the rice facing up.
  6. Garnish with slices of mango.
  7. On an available kitchen counter surface, place a 3rd sheet and cover with rice in the same fashion as above. Place this new sheet on the mangos with the rice facing up.
  8. Garnish with avocados.
  9. On an available kitchen counter surface, place a 4th sheet and cover with rice in the same fashion as above. Place this new sheet on the avocados with the rice facing up.
  10. Garnish with spicy mayo and cucumbers. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and ready-to-serve tempura.
  11. On an available kitchen counter surface, place a 5th sheet and cover with rice in the same fashion as above. Flip the rice covered sheet onto a plate (or plastic wrap) and cover the newly exposed side with rice. Place this sheet on the layer of cucumbers and sauce.
  12. Garnish with the rest of the smoked salmon in a rose shaped pattern or as you wish.
  13. Serve as you would a slice of cake and savor with sushi sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.

Rice spreads simply when it is slightly warm, but avoid it being too hot as to not heat the other ingredients.
